Goodie! Two Shoes!
Woohoo! Standing on my own two feet!! Nothing like having something go wrong to make you appreciate little everyday things like walking around. I will still wear my boot at night for a month, and the doctor said it will be three to four months before the healing is complete, but the worst is over! I can do whatever feels ok, gradually increasing my walking. Yes! And I can't wait to use my right foot on the sewing machine pedal again.
Here's where Otto's quilt stands. I think I'll do one more zig zag, put in some more extra squares from the front, and fill in the rest with red.
Nicolette explained the name of her blog, devliegendekoe, and asked others to post why they chose the names they did. I wonder about blog names sometimes, so I thought I'd explain my blog name and hope that you will, too. Over the years I've used various combinations of my daughters' names for passwords and such. When I learned that's the first thing hackers try, I moved on to other passwords, but I still really like the combination name 'jovali,' from Jocelyn and Valerie. It has happy overtones for me, probably because it looks like 'jovial' -- and of course because it reminds me of two of my favorite people!
